The ‘This Girl Can’ campaign was designed by Sports England to inspire females in the UK to move, jiggle or wiggle their way to participate in physical activity and sport. Rushcliffe have put their own twist on this campaign to encourage and inspire more girls to get involved in physical activity. All girls within the school have been encouraged to enter a sporting photo of themselves or their team with their own slogan to show that girls can overcome any barrier. Each week the most impressive photo will be awarded the Girl of the Week. Below are a few examples of Rushcliffe Girls Can photos that are displayed around the school. Alongside this is a selection of the Year 10 girls who have put themselves forward to be ‘This Girl Can’ ambassadors for the younger students within the school. This involves organising intra-form events, running workshops, offering advice and ensuring all students have the opportunity they need to participate in physical activity. The focus of the campaign this half term is aimed at Year 10 girls who have the chance to attend various sessions each Monday 3.30-4.30 ranging from Zumba to Pilates, Yoga and Circuits
In the summer term of 2015, the opportunity has arisen once more for students in Years 7 to 9 to participate in a six week rowing course. Held at the Nottingham Rowing Club on the banks of the Trent, 10 pupils are able to take part in a course ranging from the basics, such as using a rowing machine, to the real thing!
